One of my 'goto' Indian dishes.  Great spice, creamy sauce. Served with white rice, Major Gray's Chutney and sour cream.  Very smooth.

Very good.  Email me for the recipe.

Happy Eating.

Indian Spiced Pork Tenderloin

I love pork tenderloin.  Tender, juicy, it cooks fast and takes flavors very well.  Many think about pork and fruit.  I went with Indian inspired flavors. And my take on a standard, green beans almondine. 

The spice rub:
1T brown sugar
1t salt
1t garlic powder
1t cumin seed ground
3/4t smoked paprika
3/4 fenugreek seed ground
1/8t cayenne pepper
1/2t pepper ground

I had a single tenderloin that I first pat dry and put a little drizzle of olive oil on it then the spice rub.  Put it back in the fridge for an hour.  Then browned on all sides and finished in a hot oven. It came out medium and very juicy.

The take on the green beans is....sauted not boiled.  And I toasted the almonds to bring out the flava. 

Very good.

Happy Eating!

Dinner tonight.

Maybe if I post right after I eat I'll get more of these up here.  Halibut Steaks in Papilloite. A bed of saffron rice with yellow raisins and toasted almonds cooked in chicken broth.  A layer of sauted sweet onions and red onion and on top a halibut steak cooked in papilloite with lemon slices, white wine and fine herbs.



Very light and delish!  The raisins are a nice sweet surprise in a savory dish.

Happy Eating!
